WINTER PARK, Fla. (AP) The man authorities say fled after causing a deadly crash at a Florida day care center has surrendered.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office says 26-year-old Robert Alex Corchado surrendered Thursday at the county jail.

Police agencies across the state had been searching for Corchado since the Wednesday crash that killed a 4-year-old girl and injured 14 other people, most of them children.

The Florida Highway Patrol says Corchado slammed into a convertible, which then smashed into the KinderCare building north of Orlando.

Records show he's been arrested eight times since 2000, including in December when he was charged with leaving the scene of another crash.
